  • "Superb holiday property."

    This property was spotlessly clean, very comfortably furnished, quiet, and had excellent views. It’s very rare to stay in holiday accommodation that ticks every box, but this is one of the exceptional few. We thoroughly recommend it, it’s first class.

    Thank you for the great feedback. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "It was a very comfortable cottage, clean, well laid out, with everything that you could need and it was warm even during a period of snow."

    The location was quiet, the views were fantastic but it was only a short drive to a really nice pub. The owners were friendly and welcoming and we had a great stay.

  • "This is a clean and well equipped cottage in a peaceful area."

    We were impressed by the range of guide books to this lovely part of Northumberland which the owners are understandably deeply attached to.The bed was comfortable and the bathtoom was spacious with an excellent shower. As the weather was rather wet during our stay, we were glad of the smart televison which enabled us to watch the on demand channels. The only criticism we could reasonably make was that we found the sofa to be rather uncomfortable and it shoud be replaced with a better one or with two armchairs.

    The area is fantastic and meant we were able to visit lots of well known places such as Lindisfarne, Alnwick Castle and Cragside as well the local area and beaches. We will definitely be rebooking in 2024.

  • "What a lovely holiday unexpected welcome with a few local products inc."

    local organic milk, tea and coffee for our first cuppa! Miles from other buildings and people, yet our friendly and approachable landlord Jimmy and his wife Kirsty were always available if required, full of local knowledge and recommendations or visits Oh and of course their lovely sheepdog, Meg Idyllic west facing sheep fields and hillside views from the spacious and stylish living room. Similar views from the bedroom. What sunsets and evening Venus views! What a lovely big green interesting, and blossomed garden in the front with its table and benches facing East and South for breakfast or lunches in the sunshine. Varied bird life often seen and heard. Everything throughout the newly stone built cottage was spanking new and clean and stylishly designed All mod cons and machines we needed were available. We didn’t need a washing machine but wondered if other visitors might, although the property was only advertised for two people . However we noted launderettes were available in local towns To top it all Northumberland was even up to providing unexpectedly almost daily and daylong big blue skies and sunshine until late evening in May/early June Highly recommended

    Pleased you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and the open spaces Northumberland has to offer. Guests do have access to a washing machine upon request in the neighbouring garage. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable well appointed cottage with the most amazing views imaginable."

    Jimmy and Kirsty excellent hosts, Jimmy has some amazing tales. Wild ponies, sheep, kestrals, owls, and an amazing woodland/moorland walk. Local pub has great food and cask beers, local shop very friendly and helpful. Easy drive to Morpeth, (although getting out again was a nightmare due to road closures). We will be back.

    Thank you for your review, pleased you enjoyed your stay and the local area. I hope you are able to come back and see us to explore more of the area. Lovely to meet you. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property for 2 adults consisting of living/diner/kitchen, shower/toilet and a double bedroom each overlooking the working sheep farm fields through large picture windows in the living room & bedroom."

    Comfortable bed, plenty of pans & equipment for kitchen use including spare food containers and cookware in the drawer unit under the tv. Good cooker, microwave, hob, fridge & freezer also a washing machine available in the adjoining building. Freeview & internet access on the tv, radio & audio unit with ability to connect original style iPod & other sound devices. The shower room is modern and simple to use with plenty of almost instant hot water throughout the property. A 7Kwh type 2 connector with 10meter cable car charger available just over the wall which is controlled by the owners without any issues, fair price charged per Kwh based on what they pay which is obviously changeable at the moment. The pictures shown are all accurate but the property is even better in real life. Accurate directions are sent on how to get there but you may find a search for “High Barns” or “The Lamb Man” will find then easily on Apple and Google maps. There was a lovely welcome pack to make a cuppa after our long journey along with a personal introduction from our excellent hosts with information about the property and the area. Plenty to do in the local area at commercial, National Trust & English Heritage properties along with varied moorland, countryside and wonderful beaches. We stayed for 10 days, were busy every day and still needed more time.

    Thank you and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Lovely to meet you. Property Owner
